    Does Ames' water put out fires better than other cities' water?

    Walked by Sweeney just a bit ago, seems like parts of the building likely got by with little damage other than some water damage from the sprinklers going off. Looked to me like the fire must have been on the roof on the west end of the part of the building that runs east-west.

    I feel like at least once a year that place gets evacuated for a fire alarm. If Sweeney is the old brick building by Physics.

    It's not. Gilman is to the west of Physics, and Science I/II are to the east.

    Sweeney is behind (west) of Durham.
